Some Pics to share

I just wanted to share some pics of some of my favorite spots in the house. It being so close to Thanksgiving I thought I would share some of the things that I am thankful for, my house is far from perfect and it could still use alot of home improvements but I am very thankful we even have a home to call our own. The pic to the left is what I look at when I am taking a bath. The two little ducks I used to play with down at my grandmothers house when I was little ,so this helps me to remember all the wonderful times I shared with my grandparents as I was growing up. We had so many fun times riding bikes, swimming, water skiing, watching Lawrence Welk on the weekends. I spent alot of my free time in the summers with my grandparents.

The pic in the middle is a basket full of fun remembrance's the bear was given to me by my husbands grandmother before she pasted, the small pink elephant was my great granny's she played with this we she was in her last years as she went back to her childhood, the blanket was my grandmothers as was the silver dish. The cute little pink hair brush set and toy clown was given to be by my kids they know I love old things.

The pic to the left is of a pic of a little girl who I think is the little Charmin toilet paper girl . I have always love snow pics and this little girl fits right in with the snow pics. Isn't she just adorable. So here are a few things I am thankful for as you can see. But as I am sure I have told you before I am first and foremost thankful to Jesus Christ my savior who loves me and always forgives even though I don't always deserve it. I am thankful for my wonderful family that he has blessed me with, the home and all my belongings that he has let me borrow until my time to go home to be with him. I am also thankful that God has let each of our paths cross, you all have come to be so dear to me. I'm sure I could go on and on but I wont keep you anymore than I have ,thanks for coming by to visit. Blessings, Karen

Another Update.

Well I didn't make it to the nursing home yesterday it was a long school day. Plus my mom didn't want to get out as cold as it was , she gets sick when she gets out in the wind. So we went today. My grandmother looks so awful. She cant remember even just a few minuets. Her coloring looks awful and her eyes look glassy. But she is always glad to see us and always tells us how much she loves us. She does not seem to be in any pain, thank the good Lord. So there is my update.

Now I have several of you dear friends who I am faithfully praying for (you know who you are) I just want you to know I am thinking of each of you and every free thought I send another prayer up for you and your family. You are all special to me and I love each and everyone who visits my blog. Thanks again for all your prayer and concerns for our family.

I am still working on my blanket I am crocheting for Dylan for his Christmas present. I wanted to share that pic with you all too. So that's what that pic is up top. I also have a question for you. My sil is wanting a broccoli and rice casserole for thanksgiving. Has anyone got a good recipe? I really need a good recipe I have never cooked one and would rather not be trying new recipes that might not be good for thanksgiving. So any tried and true recipe please send my way!

Blessings, Karen

Headed to nursing home

this afternoon. I will let you know the update when I get home. I talked to my grandmother on the phone last night and she was really confused. She keeps thinking everyone is dead for some reason. She doesn't remember that my mom has even been coming down there. Unsure if she has had another stroke or if it is the medicine. Again I want to thank each and everyone of you for every prayer you have said for our family.
Don't forget to go by Donna's blog and get in on her giveaway. It would make a great gift for a child.
Another great giveaway is here Please go over and visit my sweet friend Dena and get in on a holiday giveaway. You better hurry cause I'm ahead of you! lol
I also have a question for each of you have you ever had a Christmas wish that you never got filled and still have that wish today? Or maybe have a wish you would like to have but don't see it possible. I'd love to hear from you.
I have always wanted a convertible car ,white in color. I'd also like to have my house remodeled the parts that need it. Not everything just the pars that need it. Like new windows, painting, new roof. ect. Hope you all have a great Tues. Blessings, Karen

I just want to say how thankful I am for all of you wonderful friends, your prayers and concerns mean so much. An update on my grandmother is yes she is still hanging on. She said yesterday she woke up and she is still on earth! Kinda cute I thought. She also said that God was going to take her to heaven on the 22nd of this month. We dont know if this was God or the morphine we will just have to wait and see. I plan to make another trip down today if we can get done with school early enough. I will try to keep you all updated as much as possible. Again thanks for your prayers.
Now the giveaway is from a friend who has been going thru alot her self. She is giving away a very cute piggy bank. Go by and check it out. and while your there say a little prayer for her too.
Hope you all have a great Friday! Blessings, karen

Well My grandmother is still here and still hanging on. She has really enjoyed all her company and I think if she had so many people visiting her all the time she would do so much better. But everyone lives out of town so its very hard. I can not express how thankful I am to each of you for your prayers and concerns. Please continue to pray that Gods will be done. I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday. Blessings , Karen

Remember us in Prayer

I know I said I was going to be sharing some pics of the arts and craft festival but to be honest it was so packed I didn't even try to pull out my camera. We did have a great time looking or should I say window shopping. Most of the items was things you see in every craft show but I did see one shop that a gentleman made handmade brooms. He was making them there. It was so cool I hope to try and find him online. The name of the shop was Shaker Brooms and Boxes. I will let you know if I find him online.

Now as most of you know with today being Monday we are usually doing school but we took a vacation day and went to say goodbye to one of the most precious ladies in my life (her pic is above) my grandmother. She is not doing good and they are only giving her maybe 2 dys. We went down today and talked to the nursing home about taking her off all her medications except for pain. They took the IV out and well I did the hardest thing I can imagine. Telling someone you love so much goodbye for the last time you will see them here on this earth. I know she will be whole again soon and in no more pain. I also know that one day I will see her again, but this flesh has such a hard time letting go. So this is why I ask for your prayers dear ones. I know that the next few days will be very hard ones as they are for any family who loses a family member. I just pray that thru the loss of her earthy life her family will be saved. ( the ones who don't know our precious Lord) Alot of our family is lost and alot have nothing to do with each other so our family needs lots of prayer for this situation too. Thank you so much for all your kind words and prayers you all mean so much to me .

Blessings to you all, Karen

More Turkey Decor!

Thanks so much for the sweet comments about my fall decor! I know I have said it before but fall is my fav time of year so I love to decorate for the special occasions. Lori, you ask if I would have turkey or ham well I only like turkey if its fried . I d rather have a good honey baked ham. Yum! Cant you just see the pounds piling on, and you know you gotta have some pecan pie.

I am so looking forward to this weekend my family and I are going to Macon Ga. for the big Christmas made in the South arts and crafts festival. Its a once a year show and we love going to look and snack and enjoy each other. If you've never heard of it check out this site : there might me one close enough to some of you to check one out. If not maybe you can have a weekend getaway. Ill try to take some pics when I go. Well I better run and get the boys started in their school work. I do have one quick question for today. What are you most thankful for?

My answer would have to be first and foremost my salvation and second family. We all have so much to give thanks for we need to do it more than once a year. Don't' you agree? Hope you all have a great Thursday! Blessings!

Thanksgiving Decor

Well now that October is over I have added a few more things to my fall decor that says Thanksgiving a bit more. I wanted to share a few pics of my Turkey day items with you and will probably do the same tomm. Do you add more things to your fall decor in Nov? Id love to see your turkey pics or hear some of your family traditions. So yall share with me some over your November highlights! Every year after the turkey and dressing, I look forward to watching the lighting of Macy's great tree here in Atlanta. I always watch in on tv and have done so for as long as I can remember.

I am so glad this election year is over, not pleased with the results but I did vote so I at least had my say so. I know that God is in control and that is what I have to believe in. I am also glad we don't have to have any more mud slinging or name calling. Now lets focus on family!
